The global health crisis has disrupted our youth’s ability to develop critical social and emotional skills. These skills are important to set them up for long-term academic and career success.
According to McKinsey & Company, the average K-12 student in the US could lose $61,000 to $82,000 in lifetime earnings, or the equivalent of a year of full-time work, solely as a result of COVID-19–related learning losses. These costs are significantly worse for youth in low-income communities.
In response to this, Project Access is implementing a curriculum focused on equipping youth with the needed skills to set them up for lifelong success which include:
Research has shown that developing these skills can increase a student’s academic performance by 11%. Other positive outcomes include an improvement in classroom behavior, an increased ability to manage stress and depression, and demonstrating better attitudes about themselves, others, and school.
Join us in equipping our youth with the important skills they need to be successful in the classroom and well beyond.
We ask you to join us in raising $36,500 to deliver this timely curriculum to our communities. Our youth face significant challenges today—but with your help, we can help them reach their PIE IN THE SKY!
